Happy Birthday, Andy!
We celebrated Andy'a fifth birthday today! His Pod B friends made him a pink and purple pot that featured a panda bear, a koala, some dice, and chess pieces. His walk around the candle ended in a jog! His parents shared a great video of Andy'a life which started with adorable baby photos. Later, we had delicious cupcakes and wonderful books. Thank you so much, Nan and Pawel!
It's so hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of school. It's also hard to believe that Brooke, Melanie, and Rachel will not be a part of our regular staff next year. During snack, we presented these three super-teachers with gifts made by the children. Brooke received an adventure book written and illustrated by the children. Melanie loves and cares for plants and was given a clay pot. Rachel also received clay pieces which can be used as vases, or perhaps a coffee mug (as suggested by the children). Thankfully, Rachel will be with us for summer camp!
We look forward to seeing you all at 11:45 tomorrow for our end-of-year celebration!
